Ribbon and Twine Workshop

Hello bloggers!
I have been working in my little studio and then remembered that I still have quite a few things I hadn't shared yet. So here I am now with some cards I made for the ribbon and twine workshop I held at the Glitterpot recently. It was a fun class and I think we made some lovely cards. But judge for yourself:

A card with apertures that I "filled with ribbon and twine, great for scraps! This one turned out quite "manly" I think...

These flowers were made with extra wide ribbon that I folded in half lengthwise and snipped at the top before rolling them up.

This one has a few things going on, weaving through a border punch design, folding onto DST and a punched out shape covered with twine.

And my favourite, the flower bouquet with lots of different ribbon flowers.

Here is a detailed picture of the flower bouquet card:

I particularly like the ricrac rose, but the organza flowers are lovely, too.

Hope you like these projects, thanks for stopping by!
